Coalition For Humane Immigrant Rights Of L.A.

LOS ANGELESOn Wednesday, federal judge Susan Bolton enjoined sections of Arizona's misguided anti-immigrant law, SB1070.  The following is a statement by Angelica Salas, Executive Director of the Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights of Los Angeles (CHIRLA), a regional human and immigrant rights not-for-profit community-based organization based in Los Angeles.

"Today's preliminary injunction is a significant partial victory for immigrants, Arizonans, and any American who believes in the protection of freedom, liberty, and equality.  Judge Bolton has sent a clear and strong message that sections of the law are at minimum questionable and should not go into effect on July 29.  The injunction of the most egregious sections of SB1070 bolsters our argument all along that this law is unconstitutional

We will continue to apply political, economic, and legal pressure on Arizona and claim final victory until the law is erased from the books and just and humane immigration reform is advanced in Congress.

As the impact of this decision trickles down to immigrants residing in Arizona and to other jurisdictions considering similar divisive laws, we call on the Obama Administration to stop the reign of terror on the immigrant community and the Congress, especially the leadership in the Senate and the House, to advance practical and humane solutions such as comprehensive immigration reform."
